Bear sightings in Wilton are increasingly common, but over the last few days, some lucky residents have gotten some up close video footage of our ursine neighbors in action. (Thanks to all who send us your photos and videos!)

The first on Monday, Sept. 11 was spotted by Tina Butler on Fairview Ln.. She said the hungry guy ripped down several bird feeders while visiting very close to her back deck.

The second sighting happened today, Wednesday, Sept. 13 in the Mountain Rd. area (closer to the Danbury Rd. end). Shelley Cooper Spezzano spotted this duo enjoying the sunny day.
